The origin of the word reveals its meaning to be, “יהוה  is Salvation.”   There is evidence that 2000 years ago a Hebrew Israelite man walked the earth in his true Hebrew name Yahshua Ben Yoseph.

Q. How should I dress at the feast? What should I wear?  

A. We encourage you to wear professional attire or dress as well as possible.

We as Hebrew Israelites wear long white robes, with diadems which represents our crown. Nevertheless, we invite you to do your best. But come as you are and keep the laws of יהוה. 

Q. What day do you keep the Sabbath? 

A. יהוה blessed the seventh day. We keep it every seven days into perpetuity from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. In reality, there is no such thing as Friday or Saturday. It just so happens that the 7th day falls in that time slot. It will never fall in a different time slot. After all, it is to be kept every seven days. 

Q. How do I prepare for the feast?  

A. Maximize your blessing by keeping the Feast of יהוה as an act of obedience and submission to the Living God יהוה.  Leave all of your worries, fears, bills, and problems to be addressed when you return home. Focus on the fact that יהוה chose you out of many to receive something in particular from Him this feast. Pay 10% to יהוה and 10% to yourself first: and don’t touch what you pay yourself. Then watch יהוה bless you to be able to make it to the feast and take command of your finances, your health, and your life. It is also recommended that you register early so that we can accommodate you more effectively for all of your feast needs.
